Self-assembled dendronized CdS nanoparticles have been attracting considerable attention because of their photoluminescence properties depending on annealing treatments. In this study, their annealing-induced self-assembled structure was investigated via scanning transmission electron microscopy; thin foil specimens of self-assembled dendronized CdS nanoparticles were prepared by ultramicrotomy and the STEM images revealed their ordered structure and the effect of the annealing treatment. In addition, a structural order belonging to the P213 space group was identified via an autocorrelation analysis. The results indicated that this structural order could be achieved only over a few tens of nanometers.
